Pearl Barley Casserole

Recipe by  

"This is a very tasty way to serve a very healthy grain that is often overlooked. I never use the mushrooms as I don't care for them and often add chopped carrots, red pepper, or grated zucchini."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a 1 1/2-quart Dutch oven or oven-safe pot over medium heat and cook onion until lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add celery and cook until starting to soften, stirring often, about 5 more minutes. Mix barley into the vegetables and stir until coated with butter. Fold mushrooms and green pepper into barley mixture; season to taste with salt and black pepper. Pour chicken broth into barley mixture and bring to a boil; cover casserole dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until barley is nearly tender, about 30 minutes; uncover casserole dish and bake barley until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 more minutes. Adjust salt and black pepper before serving.

This was a tasty, different side dish. I used 1 T. oil instead of 3 T. marg, and subbed the green pepper with a red one. That made it a bit sweeter and added a splash of color. I didn't have a Dutch Oven so I just cooked the dish entirely in a pot and it was excellent.

Easy to prepare, delicious the day after, and my picky little sister loved it too. This is a great dump recipe as well, pearl barley is begging for companions in the pot!

I have now made this three weeks in a row. It is absolutely delicious! The grandchildren even take it for their lunches. My daughter-in-law is allergic to peppers so I add more mushrooms. Last evening, just before serving, I stirred in a cup of grape tomatoes, halved. They added lots of color. I can see adding many different chopped vegetables to it...........just a terrific recipe, and so healthy!

This is a very tasty dish and great base casserole if you want to add your own vegetables. I would maybe cut back on the butter a smidge as it seemed abit much. Otherwise, I'll definitely make this again.

I really enjoy this and have made it several times. Like the others have said you can add any veggies you like to change the flavor. I also use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Yummy!! Added a few extra veggies I had on hand and added some avocado wedges on top to make it a complete meatless Monday dinner
